are you sure this isn't an LED replacement for the turn signals...so we can just put clear plastic in place of the amber plastic? we talked about this idea in another thread.

I used to do a lot of PC Board etching when I was in high school. They used to sell the entire kit at Radio Shack. It'd be even seasier for you now, than it was for me then. You could take the pics you have of the "circuit, make them into your template, and away you go!!!

It'* actually very easy. You've already done the hard part...

Scott, I am positive they are not turnsignals. My amber LED'* seem to be going to a different project, not to mention I think they rear TS are bright as heck anyways.

I wonder if that epoxy stuff wren was talking about is better than hte paint I normally cover the back of the board in....hmmmmm.

I appreciate the replies about the etching. If I had a car right now, I would take a run over and check it out. And since I dont like my CC total this month, I am going to have to with the method I know is cheap.
